We stayed during the period of the 3rd - 10th August 2013 camping. We had stayed in the naturist village in March 2013 and wanted to go back and save money, but have the beach and naturist holiday we enjoy.
We booked the trip direct with Rene Oltra via the internet which was very straight forward and paid a deposit and the rest on arrival. You will need a naturist card, but if you don't have one you just pay for it when you arrive, which was about 25 euros each. This card can be used at other resorts once you have one, which we stayed at another two naturist campsites on this trio and used our cards.
We took the P&O crossing from Dover to Calais and drove to Cap D'agde in one drive, which took 19 hours from Calais. We only had a 20 minute nap and stopped for about 10 minutes every 2 hours on the drive. The traffic was heavy in places as the route is also used by everyone else wanting to get to the south of France and Spain. Which is why we extended out trip by two days and camped twice on the way back so not to have to drive for so long.
On arrival to Rene Oltra it was about 20.30 hours and the lady at the main gate took our details and confirmed the plot number and we went onto the campsite and put our tent up. In the morning we went to the reception and paid for the outstanding amount which there are staff who speak a multiple of languages, which is displayed on their name bag which ones they speak. You get you rubber wrist band at this time which you hand back at the main gate when you leave. You must have this band on to get back into the campsite at all times, security at night will check when you come back in.
There is a cash point near to the main reception, washing machines are in all blocks around the campsite. There is a vegetable stall near to the main gate as well as pizza take away. In the middle of the campsite is a place to buy your daily bread, croissants, cakes etc. You can take away these items or you can get a breakfast for about 5 euros with coffee and site at tables. There is a shop next door to this that sales wine and cooked chicken. The prices are all cheap and did not feel that you were being taken for a rid because it was on the campsite.
The pitch is of a good size and for the money that you pay you get a lot for your money. There is electric and water on the pitch and each pitch has edges to divide them up. We found everyone to be friendly who you were next to or walked past and no one kept us up late or were noisy during our stay.
My only complaint was the showers and the toilets, but some of the blocks are new and have better facilities. The block in Luna (road name) were all old and were in need of a bit of work done to them. The water in the showers were ever to hot to get under or so cold you did not want to shower, they could do with a temperature in between. The showers were not the best for there jet and it took a while to get all the sand and bubbles off when getting showered. The sinks only had cold water in them and no plugs, so take your own if required. Each sink has a mirror and a power point, so you can dry your hair, lighting is not good so walked round to find out near to a light. The toilets in the block were old and were a stand on two marks and a hole in the floor. I have used these before and used a hole in the ground while serving in the army, but I am not to keen on them and you never feel clean when using them, but hay when in France do as the French. We did find other new blocks which had much better toilets and showers, which were normal sit down toilets, near to the side gate going to the beach.
The site is very quiet and was a great place to stay and we will go back. The walk to the beach takes 5 minutes or if you have a bike you can chain them up at the beach, which most people do. The beach is great and if you take children I would not take your children past the sun beach bar as this is the location the sex acts take place. The location past the sun beach bar are mainly couples and a lot are just there to watch and some will take part in a multiple of sexual acts, to be seen. We sunbathed here every day and are open minded and saw a lots of sex taking place, but don't be put off by this, it is great to be part of it that is what you like.
On leaving the campsite you will need to confirm to the main gate that you have paid so have your booking receipt with you and hand back your rubber wrist band.
Great holiday, love going to this location and will return back here again on another trip.
